organized campaigns that we've seen in recent memory was the 2004 george w. bush campaign. karl rove engineered a very impressive microtargeting effort, where they started to integrate people's consumer preferences, with their voting data, to try to more precise, so instead of just saying ok, we're going to target everyone that we know is, say, you know, a latino woman, you can actually individually start to target people based on what kind of car they drive or what kind of cereal they eat, all kind factors from when you fill out surveys or that kind of thing. the obama campaign did that even more impressive in 2008 and they've been building on that ever since, so they've built a formidable, digital integrated data targeting effort that they have put together with this vast network of field offices on the ground, and neighborhood teams and volunteers and through facebook and everything else. so they know practically who all of their voters are. the millions and millions of people that they expect or hope they can drive out to the polls to vote for obama. >> molly ball is a staff writ
we have just had. president obama is saying we do not want eight years like we had under george bush, and everybody agrees with both of them. but where do you go from here? >> the analysis of what governor romney and his campaign has to do is absolutely right. his campaign has to work on the ground game. likely scenarios -- are not saying probable, but possible is for mitt romney to win the popular vote and barack obama to win the electoral college. we had that once before 12 years ago. vice president gore got about half a million votes and governor bush. but people forget that john carey had 71,000 more votes -- if john carey had gotten 71,000 more votes in ohio, he would have won the popular vote and by 3 million puritan -- 3 million. >> simply because of ohio? >> because of ohio. i think it is a possibility that governor romney will get something like 271 and lose the part of the vote. a goes to the question of whether we should have an electoral college at all. for the obama folks it is two things. it is all about a ground game, and one. and number two, he has to deliver a strong
.t. revolution and a shift in policies under the clinton and george w. bush administrations. from washington, this is one hour and 25 minutes. >> welcome, everybody. i am simon rosenberg. we are grateful that you came out here today. if we had done an event around polling we would have a few more people, but we are lucky to have joining rob shapiro, the chair of our globalization initiative, our good friend edward luce, who is now the former bureau chief of "the financial times," now chief american commentator and is also a published author. he has recently written one of the more influential or at least highly commentated -- there was so much commentary around his book about whether or not america was in decline in the economic issues we will be talking about today and we feel lucky he took time out of his busy schedule to guide us. many of you know rob shapiro, who has a long history of policy leadership here in washington, starting in the early days working for daniel patrick moynihan, to helping advise bill clinton in 1992, and eventually becoming the undersecretary of commerce in the se
, he has proposed wrong and reckless policies. he's praised george bush as good economic steward and dick cheney as somebody who shows great wisdom and judgment. and taking us back to those kinds of strategies that got us into this mess are not the way that we are going to maintain leadership in the 21st century. >> governor romney, wrong and reckless policies? >> i've got a policy for the future and agenda for the future. and when it comes to our economy here at home, i know what it takes to create 12 million new jobs and rising take- home pay. and what we've seen over the last four years is something i don't want to see over the next four years. the -- the president said by now we'd be at 5. 4 percent unemployment. we're 9 million jobs short of that. i will get america working again and see rising take- home pay again. and i'll do it with five simple steps. number one, were going to have north american energy independence. we're going to do it by taking full advantage of oil, coal, gas, nuclear and our renewables. number two, we're going to increase our trade. trade grows about
'm a big supporter of george w. bush. he would be surprised to see that since i campaigned for john kerry. it is a couple of republican operatives in atlanta who are sending misleading fliers to democrats in maine, trying to get into vote for cynthia. it is ridiculous. only residents of the place you are running should contribute. if you're running for senate in maine, only people in maine could contribute. >> democracy have representation. that led to the birth of our country. it was not about corporations. it is not about karl rove. it was about representation. one of our most special freedoms. terrible decisions, a super pacs bad. people talk about big government being bad. my experience is the political industrial complex that is just as insidious both here in maine and nationally. i do think we need to get back to the principle that when people want to run for office they should be able to have a straight dialogue with the electorate. they should be able to say who's a lot for me. people should not come in from atlanta saying do not vote for angus king or cynthia. that should not be
